¡SÚBELO, CUBA!

HAVANA CULTURA: ¡SÚBELO, CUBA!

Brownswood Recordings



LP (pre-order)

Expected Release: 15th Jun 2018

£19.99


gilles peterson’s ongoing project to cultivate the fertile Cuban club movement continues with this sensational set of contemporary twists on afro-cuban traditions; all of them perfect for getting the dancefloor jumping.

the record showcases an extended network of like-minded, forward-thinking musicians driving Cuba’s music forward. Peterson & Will LV – one half of LV, who’ve released on Hyperdub & Keysound amongst others – linked up with DJ Jigüe, a much-respected producer & DJ, whose Guampara label has charted new directions for Cuban music. the album features his extended network of collaborators, connecting Afro-Cuban traditions with contemporary movements & ideas, providing a snapshot of a unique club culture that’s fast evolving. On the one hand, it’s indebted to Cuba’s unique characteristics, where regularly-practised traditions are coloured by intermittently-experienced cultures from outside. On the other, it’s part of a global shift toward de-centred club music, with homegrown, influence-grabbing dance cultures tilting attention from club culture’s traditional epicentres.
